Charlie Sheen Back at Work, Gets Ratings Bump

Charlie’s sheen remains intact for now.

Two and a Half Men” reportedly earned a bump in the ratings Monday night, amid a week of swirling rumors and revelations surrounding star Charlie Sheen’s personal life.

On the same day Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller filed for divorce, “Men” scored 13.6 million viewers, a seven percent boost, and beat the competition among adults in the prized 18-to-49-year old demo, according to The Hollywood Reporter and E! News.

The eyeball bonanza comes nearly a week after law enforcement sources told NBCNewYork the apparently inebriated actor tore apart his swanky Manhattan hotel room while parading in the buff, as a woman later identified as a porn star hid in the bathroom.

Sheen was briefly hospitalized after the meltdown for what his publicist later dismissed as the result of “an adverse allergic reaction to some medication.”

Despite the week’s drama, the Hollywood bad boy arrived for his day job as scheduled on Tuesday.

"We have resumed normally this week," a “Men” rep told People mag. "The show was on hiatus last week and the entire cast is back on set today."

Ahh, normalcy.
